    Gays Throw Giuliani’s Queer-Loving Past in His Face Rudy Giuliani has had gay friends for years. In fact, after he was kicked out of Gracie Mansion by Donna Hannover, he crashed at the pad of two of his gay BFFs. So he of all people should know, YOU DO NOT WALK AWAY FROM A BITCH WHILE HE IS TALKING TO YOU. That’s what he’s been trying to do lately, as gay groups reach out to him to maintain the pro-LGBT agenda he had as mayor. Since the summer, he’s been slowly retreating on his support of gay issues and trying to avoid the topic in his campaign platform. So Alan Van Capelle from the Empire State Pride Agenda, had his team assemble “The Giuliani Files,” a record of all of the letters and speeches Giuliani made to ESPA, including videos of testimony and addresses. Now that he’s afraid to talk about (or to) the gays, Capelle thought a walk down memory lane, to a place where Giuliani was a Friend of Friends of Dorothy, might be nice.
